Hollywood union publicists have tapped Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue and Anthony E. Zuiker, the exec producers and co-creators of CBS TV’s “CSI” franchise, to share the 2005 Television Showmanship Award.
Kudos will be presented at the Intl. Cinematographers Guild’s 42nd annual Publicists Awards Luncheon Feb. 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
“It’s unique in the annals of television to have separate producers of different series produced under the same corporate brand achieve this level of success, both in terms of ratings and content quality,” said Henri Bollinger, awards committee chairman. “They all have a clear understanding of the marketing process.”
Former 20th Century Fox Television prexy Sandy Grushow was last year’s recipient.
